'67 
ELCHANITE 



PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF 
YESHIVA UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL 

Brooklyn 
2270 Church Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 1 1226 








Each year, when we came into the school, the 
buildings were painted another exotic color, 
the floors were a bit shinier and the bulletin 
boards a bit barer. But the building was there, 
smug and squat, planted on the corner of 
Church and Bedford. It wasn't much, but it 
aroused a certain defensive pride in the heart 
of every student who survived four years there. 

The building will finally succumb to an in- 
stitution's growing pains and the wrecker's ball. 
The Yeshiva will move to more spacious 
quarters where the steam will always work and 
the water will always run. Twenty-two Seventy 
Church Avenue will be vacated, but the time 
we spent there in study, and other assorted 
pursuits, will be forever etched in our minds. 
It is to this building. Twenty-two Seventy 
Church Avenue, that we dedicate the Elchanite 
1967.

The Administration has worked diligent- 
ly to maintain a friendly and productive 
atmosphere among both students and 
faculty of the Yeshiva. Under the able 
leadership of our principal. Rabbi Dr. 
Abraham N. ZurofiT, Supervisor of 
YUHS. the school has made great strides 
in adapting its curriculum to meet the 
changing needs of modern education. To 
further achieve this goal, Mr. Samuel 
Levine, Executive Director of YUHS, 
has announced that the Yeshiva will 
move to more spacious quarters on Ave. 
M and E. 14th St. when construction is 
completed.

SOCIAL STUDIES 



To fully grasp the significance of many 
current happenings it is necessary for 
the student to be well acquainted with 
the world he inhabits as well as its past 
history and culture. The burden of thus 
educating the YUHSB student falls in the 
hands of our Social Studies Department. 
Through a seven term sequence of 
Geography. American History, World 
History and Economics each pupil 
achieves an improved understaading 
of civilization — from ancient Nomads 
to the modern Technocracy. A newly 
instituted curriculum will provide ac- 
celerated studies in History, Economics 
and Political Science through the use of 
new texts and teaching aids.

Mr. Arthur Arluck

Chairman. Administrative Assisiani 



A common culture and means of com- 
munication are two prerequisites for 
a stable society. The English language 
and its literary heritage have helped 
form the backbone of today's great 
American civilization. YUHSB requires 
a four year program encompassing the 
major aspects of English and American 
literature as well as grammar and usage. 
With this sturdy background further 
buttressed by occasional films and dra- 
matic productions, each student is pre- 
pared for rigorous competitive examina- 
tions and is able to continue in college 
as an erudite and articulate citizen.

MATHEMATICS 



Mathematics embodies the spirit of order 
and logic. For this reason it has main- 
tained great popularity and favor among 
the students of YUHSB. Headed by 
Rabbi Louis Cooper, our math depart- 
ment has been greatly modernized by 
the acquisition of new textbooks and 
emphasis ,on the latest teaching tech- 
niques. In addition to the required three 
year program of algebra, geometry and 
trigonometry, one term electives in 
college algebra and calculus with analyt- 
ic geometry are offered to interested 
and capable students. 




YUHSB offers a full four years of Sci- 
ence. All students are required to take 
two terms each of General Science and 
Biology and a great many also avail 
themselves of the elective one year 
courses in Chemistry and Physics 
offered by the Department. Soon to be 
incorporated into the program are re- 
vised and updated courses in the Physical 
Sciences which will conform to the latest 
developments in research. The Science 
Faculty has succeeded in transmitting 
its knowledge to the student body as is 
reflected in Regents and College Board 
Achievement Test scores.

FOREIGN 



LANGUAGES 



To be fully prepared for the conse- 
quences of an ever shrinking world, the 
Y.U.H.S.B. student goes through a 
rigorous six year program in the Semitic 
and Romance languages, studying for- 
eign literature and culture as well as 
vocabulary and grammar. Highlighting 
an extremely competent staff is Profes- 
sor Maurice Marshal who has developed 
his own, novel approach to teaching the 
French language. Through the use of 
his system he has achieved gratifying 
results on the three year Regents, 
Achievement and Advanced Placement

Through a two year program of minors, the 
Y.U.H.S.B. student rounds out his high school 
education. Music and art courses adminis- 
trated by a talented staff teach him to use his 
senses and develop a greater appreciation of 
beauty. He develops his body under the direction 
of the Physical Education Department through 
the use of its superior athletic and gymnastic 
facilities which include weightlifting and box- 
ing apparatus as well as numerous basketball 
courts and football fields. In the extremely 
popular Drivers Education course he learns to 
handle the responsibilities of driving an auto- 
mobile and benefits from reduced insurance 
rates.

Secretary, typist, dispenser of admits 
and free advice, Mrs. Yetta Rosenman 
bore her taxing burden well enough to 
earn the respect and admiration of the 
entire student body. Assisting her, the 
ubiquitous and indispensable Nisson 
Berlin, a YUHSB graduate, was respon- 
sible for every piece of food and printed 
matter that appeared in school. Mrs. 
Sarah Shapiro, secretary to the Office of 
the Bursar, had the formidable task of 
keeping the school's communications 
network, financial papers and other 
pecuniary activities in working order. 



MAINTENANCE 





Surmounting the insurmountable, our 
Maintenance Department, piloted by the 
father and son team of Gonsalo and 
Edgardo Laboy succeeded in keeping our 
rooms and hallways spotless. They 
labored assiduously, employing liberal 
doses of elbow grease, ammonia water, 
plaster and putty to handle the daily 
exigencies of school maintenance while 
disseminating wisdom and philosophy 
along the way.

Stan, probably the only student ever 
to go through an entire year without 
owning a Gemmorah, was left no worse 
for it. Weil known for his quick reflexes 
and jumping ability, Stan will further 
develop his science and math aptitude 
while pre-Engineering at Brooklyn next 
year.

Phineas, whose physique did much to 
make him the terror of the backyard

for us and himself for four years. One of

Jake, who immediately became one 
of Awk's favorites and Moe's myrmidons, 
showed a flair for grasping the techni- 
calities of all languages he pursued. 
Equally adept in the sciences, Jake will 
follow the advice of his father, a Y.U. 
grad, and take his fine voice with him to 
Brooklyn next fall.

Bay, B.T.A.'s answer to Charles 
Boyer, was the first senior to amass 
63,278 service credits in one week while 
maintaining an equally impressive aver- 
age. Head of almost every school publi-

Dave successfully accomplished what 
he sought out to do from the very begin- 
ning by getting through B.T.A. with as 
little sweat as possible. Displaying an 
aptitude for math and a manner of dress- 
ing all his own, Dave will drive around 
Brooklyn while stopping off to attend its

Possessing pins for inflated teachers 
and needles for tfie rest, Hesh sailed 
through B.T.A. on a wave of chatter and 
laughter. His deep interest in the af-

Sheldon, one of the most familiar

any weather, surprised very few of us 
when he received a 750 on the verbal

Jack, the instigator of many an in- 
nocuous prank, utilized his phenome- 
nally quick recall of "specific fact" by 
starring on the H.S. Bowl team for three 
years. Despite his seeming indifference, 
he maintained an astronomical average 
and made R. Yogel's exclusive club. Ex- 
tremely proficient in the sciences, as 
demonstrated in his chauffeur's chem 
class. Jack will go downtown to Brook- 
lyn Poly come next September.

Stuie, a frequent visitor to Yetta's 
office, will be best remembered for his 
earnestness and good-nature. Besides 
making him one of the most feared 
debators in the I.Y., his rhetorical prow- 
ess earned him a berth in Camp Torah 
Vodaath, no mean feat for a T.A. 
"bochur". Next year wi^l find Stuie

Mel was greatly responsible for the 
derbies, canes, and sweatshirt emblems 
that came into the school. Ascending to 
the ranks of Club 204 because R. Yogel 
needed a minyan, Mel wasn't discouraged 
from becoming a key factor on a variety 
of school publications. A writer of the 
perennially censored "Last Week" col- 
umn, Mel will resort to the sciences in 
Columbia next fall.

n the beginning . . . 

" You will find that your stay here will 
be an /«deed unique experience ..." 
Boy this place is a dump — good thing we're 
moving next year . . . We meet: Doc, who pities 
our fathers and cares for our Jewish souls . . . 
Yoc, who warns us not to become fanatics . . . 
Rock, who warns of "stiflP' Shulchan Aruch test 
. . . and Baron, who laments Reader's Guide 
omission of his favorite periodical . . . 

Doc: " B'nee, don't think I know what you're 
doing." 

Y.D. starts all out campaign against the S.S. 
Shalom — After all, "We've gotta sink the Shalom 
'cause the world depends on us." . . . We start 
collecting money for the Elchy (never quite 
finish) . . . Bernie introduces us to Rivkeleh, the 
typical Central girl — null set .. . 

Bo (to Billet): "You always have to get the 
last paragraph in, don't you?" 

Simple Simon: "Now this isn't a study peri- 
od." 



Start a club and get yellow Y's . . . Intramural 
High School Bowl initiated. Yet unanswered: 
How far away is Uranus? . . . Tzedakah drive: 
"A nickel a day keeps the Rock away" — so Mel 
sinks his nickel into Reb's tea from twenty feet 
out . . . Why does Bob always keep one hand 
under duh desk? . . . Kessler dismisses class to 
give Reiss a make-up exam . . . 

Lessel: " Close your minds and listen ..." 
Simple Simon counts final as six quizzes (with 
five lowest marks to be dropped) — pleads with us 
to pass — "How will I explain it to the office?. . . 
Get half-wit with a FuUbright who tells us (for 
our own sakes) to laugh at his jokes — Gets 
laughed at for next five months . . . Simple Simon 
legalizes cheating . . . Y.D. gags on "Oihyyin" 
. . . Bob takes over geography class — teaches it 
as well as he teaches English. Food for thought: 
What does onychogryposis mean? . . . 

Doc: "B'nee, I will explain it immediately, 
later on." 

We hand in next day's G.S. homeworks to Bo be- 
fore end of period — afraid we might lose them 
. . . Ort writes humorous composition on the 
bubonic plague . . . Herskovitz's lineage traced 
back to Yeravam ben N'vaht . . . Simple Simon 
seats class in the round — gets attacked from all 
sides . . . 

FuUbright: "/ suppose you also have a test in 
Sodom tomorrow." 

Bob gives sixty-four question essay test in last 
twenty minutes of class — "Cause duh men was 
obstreperous." . . . Go on class trip to World's 
Fair — we have to vouch for Bernie at the ticket 
booth . . . Faivushevitz gives his first final in 
eighteen years — ten points for each correct an- 
swer, one point off" for each wrong one — Gabe 
gets caught cheating and fails with a ninety- 
four . . . 

Press: " Now fehhlazzz ..." 
Bob finds out that Applesauce, Baum, Beekman, 
Billinsky, Gruber, Seeghal, and Schlamberg, 
aren't in the class. Gives hints about the final to 
save face . . . Biannual T.L. the Freshie week 
comes and we elect Schleifer Veep on a write-in 
. . Given choice of French or French . . . Second 
term over . . . Four more to go ... Good thing 
we won't be in this hole much longer, since we're 
moving soon . . . Purjes, Rothman, Brenner and 
Farmer (or so we thought) lose patience and 
leave . . . 



90PH0M0RE 







Seems we'll be holed up for another year as 
YUHSB still hasn't moved . . . Rock again? — 
you're kidding! . . . Have a big "letdown" as a 
suave American citizen replaces the inimitable 
Monsieur Mashal; however, we are soon to learn 
that Mr. MaRshal is as capable and authorita- 
tive as his predecessor . . . 

Moe: "Don't try to fool me around." . . . or . . 

Moe: " When ah say something, ah do mean it." 

Billet: " You didn't mean that. Monsieur." 

Moe: "Ah never mean what ah say." 
ANZ continues to serve us not only as a princi- 
pal, but as a friend . . . 

Goldwag: "I'm in trouble with Mr. Mar- 
shal." 

ANZ: "Are you wearing your tzitzis?" 
No matter how friendly he would like to get, the 
Rabbi must maintain his image of strength . . . 

ANZ: "Roth, have you been behaving yourself 



lately?" 

Roth: "Yes." 

M^Z:"Why?" 
Bathroom passes come and go ... Feldman 
takes Bo's and comes back with a haircut . . . 
We complain to ANZ that despite our attempts 
we can't look up to Rabbi Shmidman . . . Tze- 
dakah drive starts again — Why is a paperback 
disguised as Wyatt Earp so popular anyway? 
. . . Epstein throws out Siegel ... 

Drillman: "Eh, I don't want to twist anyone's 
arm. If you want to give, give." 
Zelo impresses the few of us who have him as a 
pillar of strength . . . 

Zelo: "May I know what's so funny. Kron- 
en berg?" 

Kronenberg: "No." 
or . . . Zelo: "I'll crack you in the face so hard 
that you'll feel it!" 

December 2, 1965: Septy smiles . . . Doc offers 
his friendship by trying to become one of the 
boys . . . 

Goldwag: "Doc, can I go to the bathroom?" 

Doc: " Wait five minutes and we will all go to- 
gether." 

What does Arluck use his comb for? . . .

Mr. Joseph Slrum, Advisor, Student Council. 



Commencing its activities under the 
competent leadership of fall term Presir| 
dent David Portowicz, this year's Gen- 
eral Organization had a most successful 
season. 

The General Organization provided the 
student body with various assemblies 
ranging from a debate among repre- 
sentatives from the Democratic. Re- 
publican and Liberal parties on the 
gubernatorial campaign to a discourse 
by a stockbroker from Merril, Lynch, 
Pierce, Fenner and Smith on the fi- 
nancial system of the U.S. Other assem- 
blies included talks on sound, radio, and 
light waves by members of the Bell 
Laboratories executive board, open stu- 
dent council meetings, various debating 



SPRING TERM 




and High School Bowl meets and a bas- 
ketball rally. 

Pres. Portowicz innovated the first suc- 
cessful club program featuring basket- 
ball instruction, science, radio, math. 
Public Speaking and Zionism clubs. The 
clubs proved to be invaluable to the 
underclassmen who jammed their re- 
spective rooms every Sunday afternoon. 
Other highlights of the fall term were 
the hilarious Chanuka Chagiga and the 
amending and distribution of the G.O. 
constitution. 

After serving as Veep during the 7th 
term, Phil Orbuch was ready to assume 
all the responsibilities of a president dur- 
ing the 8th term. The Spring Term CO., 
under his leadership, piled up a merito-

rious list of accomplishments. An in- 
teresting assembly program was high- 
lighted by a Bell Telephone demonstra- 
tion, and a very amusing Varsity-Fac- 
ulty H.S. Bowl match. These special 
assemblies did a more than ample job 
in supplementing the regular debate and 
career opportunities symposia. 

Pres. Orbuch with the help of Vice- 
President Stuart Francis has made some 
welcome innovations in G.O. activities. 
Movies were shown for the students 
amusement during lunchtime and each 
of the four classes was treated to an 
interesting trip. The most important 
event of the year was the seniors trip 
to Washington which was successfully 
arranged by a committee appointed and 
headed by President Orbuch. For the first 
time, the G.O. openly took a stand on 
important issues in the form of petitions 
protesting antishechita legislation and 
compulsory autopsies. 




Responsible for the coordination of all 
YUHSB's religious activities, the Yesh- 
iva Organization Commission, under the 
leadership of H. Pincus and L. Karp, 
carried through a very successful pro- 
gram. Included under its aegis are the 
Minyan, Kashruth Commission, and 
Tzedakah drive. 

The Minyan led by adviser Rabbi S. 
Faivushevitz, H. Pincus, and E. Singer 
is attended by sixty boys each morning. 
After the davening, breakfast is served 
by the Elchanite Concession. 

A major undertaking of the YOC is 
Tzedakah. Once again the annual charity 
drive collected over $1000 for worthy 
charities.

Arista, our honor students' organization, 
consists of a group of select young men. 
All have attained excellence in both 
Talmudic and Secular studies and are of 
course Buei Torah. 

Under the imaginative and dynamic 
leadership of Aaron Siegel during the 
Fall term, the Arista Presidency rose to 
new heights. The meetings, intellectually 



stimulating, taught us as much about our 
heritage as did our four years inside the 
walls of the Yeshiva. The term was cli- 
maxed by the elections of the next term's 
officers. The Spring term was headed by 
David Portowicz, and was highlighted by 
our trips to IBM and the induction of the 
new Arista members. 

Taking over this year as advisor to Arista 
was Rabbi Yaacov Dardac, Instructor of 
Torah. It may be safely stated that Rabbi 
Dardac is the reason Arista is what it is 
today.

BULLETIN 



Designed to provide a weekly review of school 
news and events, the Bulletin has become the 
most popular of YUHSB's publications. This 
year's volume boasts a perfect publication 
record, having appeared every week through- 
out the school year, and often twice or three 
times weekly with special editions. 

Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief David 
Kaufman and Editorial Advisor Melvin Silberk- 
lang the Bulletin introduced many innovations: 
the page length was increased to fourteen 
inches, separate weekly news, editorial and 
sports pages became standard, and supplements 
to these pages were included when necessary. 
Editorials struck out at administration, faculty 
and students, and constantly carried the banner 
of improvement and reform. In addition, each 
Bulletin was brightened by the Last Week col- 
umn which offered a satirical review of the 
week's fiascoes. The end of each term saw this 
column claim an entire page with the presen- 
tation of the Bulletin Dubious Achievement 
Awards.

Surmounting formidable financial and 
personnel difficulties, the Topics ap- 
peared four times during the school 
year, and underwent numerous technical 
improvements and innovations. 

Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief 
David Kaufman and Managing Editor 
Melvin Silberklang, the paper expanded 
its page format from four to five columns 
and incorporated many unusual and ex- 
citing layouts through the use of bold 
headlines and photographs. For the first 
time in its fourteen year history, the 
Topics included a cartoon strip entitled 
Simon Says, which appeared as a regular 
feature. As per tradition, a satirical 
Purim Topics, The Yunuk, made its 
clandestine appearance at the Purim 
Chagiga to the equal delight of students 
and faculty.

Completing YUHSB's repertoire of

of the student body. Spectrum, the Sci-

the literary periodical, Focus, a journal 
of commentary and analysis, and

by students of both this and other schools. 
Under the leadership of David Bayewitz 
and William Ira Schechter. the Yugar 
published periodic issues for away games 
as well as the regular home game issues. 
With articles ranging from the J.V. to an 
interview with Jack the Soda Man, plus

DEBATING TEAM 



The Yuspeaks, our varsity debating 
team, enjoyed its most successful sea- 
son, since its inception early in YUHSB 
history. Under the leadership of Stuart 
Francis, the team compiled an amazing 
undefeated record. The team's record 
of victories is particularly impressive 
following last year's bottom notch finish 
in the standings. The squad's success 
may be attributed to much hard work on 
the part of its members coupled with 
Francis' numerous innovations, among 
them a research squad and a junior var- 
sity team. As a result, the Yuspeaks 
experienced better coordination and 
more team effort than ever before.

Although High School Bowl has been a func- 
tioning activity for only three years, it has al- 
ready established itself as the school's most 
popular non-athletic pursuit. Led by Co-cap- 
tains Jack Flamholz and Leon Karp, the Yu- 
brain squad, rounded out by Manager Howard 
Lindenauer and William Schechter, bettered 
last year's record and finished in second place 
with eight wins against two losses, both coming 
at the hands of first place Flatbush. 

Highpoints of the season included a thrilling 
double-header victory over MTA and lopsided 
triumphs over HILL 540 — 70 and Ramaz, 
500 — 90. The Yubrains also accomplished a 
heretofore unheard of feat, shutting out Man- 
hattan Central 360 — 0. In the traditional Fac- 
ulty game Mssrs. Sanders, Zuckerman, Brand 
and Rosenman were defeated by the Varsity, 
280—235. 

Aside from the Varsity slate, there is com- 
petition on the intramural level. This year, 
under the direction of Howard Lindenauer, the 
intramural program was successfully and effi- 
ciently completed.

Mr. Robert E. Bassell 
Advisor. English Library. 

The library is one of the most important 
school services. Containing a large and 
varied collection of non-fiction, fiction, 
biography and reference, it amply serves 
the entire student body, and has annual 
circulation of over one thousand vol- 
umes. The total library staff comprises 
almost 12% of the student body. Serving 
on the various squads, these students 
gain both service credits and valuable 
experience in leadership and library 
skills. 

Under the leadership of Supervisor 
Joel Traube and Co-heads David Reiss 
and Melvin Silberklang, the library staff 
this year was better organized, and a 
maintenance squad was created. The 




library's inventory was substantially in- 
creased through two Government book 
grants under Title II and Title III of the 
federal education law, and the acquisi- 
tion of textbooks through the New York 
State Textbook Loan. The library is 
advised by Mr. Robert Bassell. 

Supplying the spiritual and religious ref- 
erence and circulation volumes for the 
student body, this year's Hebrew Library 
was ably headed by faculty advisor Rabbi* 
J. Epstein. The library collection also 
contains many modern Hebrew novels 
and magazines and an extensive collec- 
tion of historic volumes worth thou- 
sands of dollars.

"Booze" Schacher, 
Co-head. Purim Chagiga 




^\ <S A 



"This Chagiga was the best ever". These words 
could be heard echoing throughout the school after 
the Chanuka Cha-Go-Go, headed by N. Nekrich, 
and co-headed by M. Goldberg and S. Roth. The 
only thing that was better was the Purim Chagiga. 

The Chanuka Chagiga was highlighted by the band 
under N. Nekrich, the Glee Club, and of course the 
Skit. The skit, "Moe-Ella", was performed in the 
true spirit of past Chagigot. The Glee Club, led by 
G. Lefkovitz, J. Appleman, and S. Rosenthal sang 
a medley of songs, and the Ol' Professor, in the 
person of Harold Baumgarten, made his appear- 
ance. 

The Purim Chagiga, which was better than the best, 
drew more faculty than any Chagiga in the past 
decade. After an introduction by the President, the 
show got underway with a series of Glee Club selec- 
tions. Rabbi Wolfson, who received the "Good Guy 
of the Year" award to the unanimous delight of the 
audience, addressed the student body about the 




Untouched by human hands 




meaning of Purim. The band put on a one half hour 
show, drawing a thunderous ovation. The skit, 
highlight of the Chagiga, was entitled; "What Did 
You Do In the War Rabbi Dr.? or. It's getting Kind 
of Drafty." It provided a biting look at student 
deferments. 

Following tradition, the classic soda and sandwich 
dinner was served the audience at both Chagigot. 
The auditorium was festively decorated and the 
Yunuk made its appearance at the close of the Purim 
festivities.

Oldest among our minor teams, the

boardmen a chance to compete against 
talented students in other schools. In a 
league under the auspices of the Inter

Members are chosen through a series

Under the patient and watchful eye of 
rookie coach Irv Bader, the Yugars em- 
barked on what promised to be a most 
successful season. Unfortunately, an un- 
timely injury to Yugar Co-captain Gary 
Sprung had a detrimental effect on his 
playing. Undaunted, the Yugars, minus 
Sprung, chalked up a victory in the sea- 
son opener against RJJ. But the taste of 
victory was short lived as the Yugars 
suffered a 70 — 41 trouncing at the hands 
of a strong MTA five. Recovering from 
this crushing defeat, the Yugars bounced 
back to wage successful campaigns 
against Flatbush, Ramaz, Rogosin and 
Elizabeth while bowing 53 — 45 in an up- 
set to HILI at the victors' court. At mid- 
season the Yugars' 5 — 2 record found 
them in second place. 

During the holiday break, the Yugars re- 
turned to HILI for the HILI Invitational 
Tournament. Out to avenge their pre- 
vious loss, our hoopsters whipped the 
HILI squad. Captain Joel Friedman col- 
lecting 29 points and the MVP in the 
process. 




Returning to regular season play, the 
Yugars journeyed to the Bronx deter- 
mined to end MTA's winning streak. 
Paced by the hustle and heads up play of 
Menachem Taubus, Willie Weinrib and 
Irv Wizenfeld, they sent the Lions to the 
halftime lockers trailing by eleven points. 
The Yugar lead continued through the 
third quarter, but Lion strength began 
to show early in the final period and 
MTA took the encounter 67 — 54. With 
their eye on the Garden, the Yugars 
fought on taking two from YCQ, drop- 
ping a heartbreaker to Elizabeth and 
topping RJJ to round out the season with 
an 8 — 4 record and second place berth.

who, in an administrative capacity, 
proved invaluable to the team. Credit is 
also due the varsity managers, and Simon 
Farkas and Ira Feldman who gave of 
their time to collect money and tickets 
at the home gate. 



The playoffs pitted the Yugars against 
the Flatbush Falcons. No Yugar fan 
doubted an imminent victory. The 
Falcons put up a strong fight for points 
throughout the game, but an unrelenting 
drive maintained the Yugar lead to the 
very last minutes of the battle. At that 
point, an unfortunate scoring error re- 
moved star center and rebounder Alan 
Lebenbaum from play. Disheartened, 
the team then faced the loss of Captain 
Friedman and gave up their five point 
lead to end regulation play at 55 all. The 
game was lost in overtime, and for the 
Yugars, the season was over. 

Special recognition must go to Irv 
Forman, former Yugar coach and pres- 
ently Director of Athletics at YUHSB,

The Aquamen in their 1967 edition were 
one of the most successful of YUHSB's 
varsity teams. Faced with the problem 
of hardening rookie swimmers, Co- 
Captains Joel Yarmak and Mike Kline 
accomplished an admirable feat. By 
securing two excellent coaches, Matty 
Monheit and Nathan Presser, both 
former Aquamen, the captains provided 
the moral boost which helped the team 
at every practice and helped them pre- 
pare for every meet. Only Flatbush 
failed to fall before the might as the 
Aquamen ended the season in second 
place. 

The improvements in team management 



this year are due to the efforts of both 
Captains, the coaches and the Aqua- 
men's manager, Harold Baumgarten. 
The Erasmus Hall High School pool was 
secured for midweek practices while the 
Flatbush Boys' Club pool, as in past 
years, was used for Friday practices and 
for meets. All swimmers were timed 
regularly and careful records were kept 
of each week's times, providing each 
team member with a weekly goal to 
surpass. The guelling weekly practices 
and the expert guidance and coaching 
of Monheit and Presser gave the Aquamen 
the edge they needed for victory.

A brilliant YUHSB Softball team, 
favored to win the championship, is 
guided by the fine pitching and sharp 
play of "all around athlete" Irv Wizen- 
feld and the experience and wide-spread 
baseball knowhow of Steve Gish. The 
aggressive play of several three year men 
rounded off the well balanced combina- 
tion of power-hitting, expert fielding and 
Strongly co-ordinated team work. 

The Track team, captained by a powerful 
triumvirate, has to its credit a fleet- 
footed track division and a solid field 
squad. It is obvious that the team will 
feel the loss of Bill Schechter's powerful 
arm in the shot put next year, Neil 
Nekrich's inexhaustible power as a 
sprinter and Steve Roth's gifted legs in 
the 220. 

The BTA Soccer team, led by Joe 
Herskovitz and Gabe Schonwald, pre- 
sented the lYHSL with an unbeatable 
team. Sparked by their captains and the 
fancy footwork of stars Jerry Tepler 
and Dave Berkowitz, the Soccer team 
finished the season as expected of such a 
top notch squad.

The J. v., coached by veteran Yugar 
Harold Bretstein, finished a successful 
season, attaining the first place position 
in the newly formed Metropolitan Junior 
Varsity Basketball League, as well as 
copping top prizes in tournament com- 
petition. The J.V.'s record was an out- 
standing 17 — 3. 

The team was sparked by Captain Dave 
Schildkraut, whose 15 point average 
made him high scorer. Tully Reich, an 
outstanding playmaker and ballhandler, 
earned the post-season tourney MVP. 
These two sophomores, along with top 
rebounder Larry Bretstein, represented 
the Yugars at the first annual All-Star 
game of the J.V. league. Two promising 
freshmen, Arthur Weiner and Charles 
Orbuch, held starting positions at guard 
and forward, respectively.

Intramural competitions provide stu- 
dents with an opportunity to exhibit 
their prowess in a wide range of activ- 
ities, from athletics to debating. An 
atmosphere of friendly competition and 
fair play prevails, and the valuable 
experience of team cooperation is en- 
joyed by all participants. Athletic con- 
tests are held during lunchtime, while 
non-athletic contests are generally pre- 
sented before the designated home 
class. 

Debating competition was this year 
ably coordinated by Alfred Neugut 
and David Martin, in the Fall and

High School Bowl Manager Howard 
Lindenauer did a commendable job in 
his post and was reelected to serve in 
the Spring term. Under the auspices of 
Spring term Athletic Manager Ronald 
Rothblatt and Fall term Athletic 
Manager David Wolfson, schedules 
were completed smoothly and many 
innovations, including the awarding of 
bowling trophies to the school champ- 
ions and the conducting of all-star 
games in both basketball and football, 
were instituted.

Headed by Nisson Berlin, with the able 
assistance of Ira Feldman, Joel Silver- 
berg. Stuart Rosenthal, Michael 
Handler and Irving Zoltan, the conces- 
sion filled the need for school supplies 
and edible products. Sales were improved 
by a redecorating job and a soup hole. 

David Berkowitz and Joseph Herskovitz, 
Co-Heads of the Audio-Visual Squad, 
provided the student body with regular 
movies during lunch period while assist- 
ing teachers with the use of our numerous 
audio-visual aids. 

Rounding out the school commissions, 
William Ira Schecter served both the 
faculty and the student body by providing 
the Times — Monday through Friday — at 
a nominal fee.

It seems strange to be here again. Perhaps the 
city heads desired my company to wreck this 
place because they knew I was familiar with its 
structure. Twelve years have passed since I last 
saw this edifice, and I can still picture its in- 
terior. 

By the time my eyes get used to the dim light 
in this locker room. I will be able to recall 
which locker I occupied in my high school days. 
In twelve years, this room hasn't changed a bit. 
I can almost hear the roar of the crowd in the 
gym, and the booming voice of the coach fran- 
tically yelling pre-game instructions. I remem- 
ber nervously trotting through this gymnasium 



IRVING ZOLTAN 

entrance each Saturday night during the season, 
trying to seem confident as I cautiously scanned 
the third row stands for the sight of my proud 
father, who was always there to watch me play. 
The hot, five-hundred watt lamps that blinded 
me whenever I stepped up to take a foul shot 
have been replaced by long rows of cool fluores- 
cent tubes. 

Going up the massive staircase to the first floor, 
every inch of shiny bannister and ornate wains- 
coting is familiar. Only the fact that these 
halls are deserted produces a feeling of unfamili- 
arity. Gone is the babbling laughter and ani- 
mated conversation that once filled this hall; 




only the soft patter of my footsteps can be 
heard. The sight of old, carved wooden desk- 
chairs strikes me as I walk past the classrooms. 
The cracked, unerased blackboards seem to 
radiate all the wisdom that had been chalked 
upon them for so long. The large clocks at the 
front of each room, eagerly watched by hun- 
dreds of students as the end of each day ap- 
proached, no longer function. Several yellow 
sheets are atop the teacher's desk in every room; 
floor plans of the school, studied by the wreck- 
ing crews, who are preparing their equipment 
outside. It is hard to imagine that this building 
can be destroyed. Even when deserted it seems 




to be alive. The walls, plastered with yellowing 
posters, appear to be capable of eternally 
breathing life into the musty classrooms. Great 
structures like this aren't demolished — they die. 

The auditorium on the second floor appears 
unusually large. That is, perhaps, because the 
large stage and ebony grand piano have been 
removed. The sonorous tones of the piano can 
still be heard, haunting the bare walls. The long 
rows of seats have been removed, but the wide, 
unusual strips of terrazzo tile that covered the 
aisles still shine brightly in the strong afternoon 
sunlight that streams through the huge windows. 
The windows themselves seem too large for the 
hall, for they have been stripped of their dark 
green draperies. The harsh noise of an air com- 
pressor shatters the silence and snaps me out 
of my nostalgic trance. 

I slowly leave the building and head for my car. 
Reluctantly, I activate the radio unit, and in- 
struct the crane operator to begin. Each time 
the heavy ball strikes the domed brick wall, a 
piece of my heart is swept away. But the mem- 
ory of the silent halls will never be forgotten.

I cannot run — I cannot hide. 
Not because of love or pride. 
But fear — the cold and honest kind — 
The kind one gets just when he finds 
The world — so cold — was colder still 
When ovens — hungering souls — were filled 
With lives and loves and thoughts and tears 
And cries for all the future years 
That won't be lived and won't shine bright 
For millions — each a flickering light 
That with the door shut tight by crazy 
Murderers, a wind so lazy 



And indifferent snuffed out souls 
And blew out oh so many coals 
An awful deed that ten years hence. 
Will be forgotten by the tense 
And nervous folk who care for money 
And success — And oh, it's funny! 
For doors that close can open again 
And close once more and brother, then 
Those sleeping nerves of fear will wake 
But, then it will be much too late 
And once again we'll hear a cry 
As brother watches brother die. 





jliJS/TwthvJlMJifii/ Q^ 



Jacob Appleman 




Upon its face a world unknown 
The enigmatic depths of calm and cold. 
Upon the expanse of its splashing drone, 
A man and his boat, oh! brave and bold. 

But lo! The calm is dispersed. 

The tranquility cast aside. 

Fury and frenzy, slight at first. 

An abundance of waves, a stronger tide. 

The forces of Neptune completely freed. 
The small raft struggles to stay afloat. 
The speck of life, the adventurer's seed, 
Holds ever so dearly to its wretched boat. 

The turbulence grows. 



The struggle continues, 
It will be to the death. 
With straining sinews, 
Life loses its breath. 

He can't go on. 
His life must cease. 
Life must be death; 
Never peace. 

The man dies; 
His soul leaves. 
Forever forgotten — 
The sea is appeased.

The Better Man 



Jack Flamholz 



Back to back the two men stood 
Where once two friends did stand; 
Each one with hate 'graved on his face, 
Each one with gun in hand. 

The seconds drew into the clear 
Should bullet err in flight. 
A voice began the fatal count 
As day replaced the night. 

The voice continued, "four . . . five . . six" 
The enemies drew apart. 
Each one with grim resolve stepped back. 
Each one with fear in heart. 

The voice continued, "eight . . . nine . . . ten' 
They turned, each shot one round. 
Where once two men did breathe G-d's air 
One lay upon the ground. 



WHERE 



Joel Friedman 



Time is a fast and flighty thing 
That's always on the run 
Racing on its merry way 
Like bullets from life's gun. 




Where do the minutes travel? 

What happens to the hours? 

And do the days and weeks and months 

Hide out in secret bowers? 



Where go the long, lost yesteryears? 
That swiftly passed all men? 
Do they fade into nothingness 
Or are they born again?

Our building's usefulness has come to an 
end. No longer will we or others like us 
learn and find enjoyment here. But use- 
fulness and life don't always go hand in 
hand. YUHSB will be remembered by 
sixty-seven boys and many, many others 
as a little red building at the corner of 
Church and Bedford. In this remem- 
brance there is life.
